Shooting in the Clinic

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” – John 10:10

Gun Shot Patient

It was Sunday afternoon after our church service when everbody was relaxing after working hard the whole week. Our nurses were over to the clinic attending to patients after being alerted that there was an emergency.

Suddenly we heard some gunshots which seemed to be coming from our clinic. Our visitors and everybody in the compound was terrified. We all went over there to see what was happening.

We found a 22 year old  woman  who had a severe bullet wound on her left foot after being shot by her husband after a domestic fight. After shooting her, the husband ran away and her relatives brought her to our clinic. Her husband’s relatives came to provoke a quarrel, and there was a high commotion between the two families. It was intense and when things got out of hand, our security guard Dut was forced to shoot some rounds in the air in order to scare the warring parties. We thank God everything was contained within a short period of time and nobody was hurt.

The patient was then rushed to Wau hospital with our ambulance. It is very difficult to work under this environment but we thank God for his blood is always on our side to protect us.

Please pray for these woman who is still in Wau Hospital undergoing treatment for healing, and for security for our medical staffs.
